‘The Vampire Diaries’ Steven R. McQueen To Guest Star As Jeremy In ‘Legacies’
‘Legacies‘ will be gaining a Gilbert when The Vampire Diaries/Originals spin-off launches later this year. Steven R. McQueen is set to reprise his role as Jeremy it has been announced.
McQueen starred as the adoptive brother and biological cousin of Elena Gilbert in TVD, and was last seen in the show’s finale helping set up the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted. However, it looks like this might not be a permanent return, as he is only listed as a guest starring in Episode 3 according to TVLine who first reported the story.
‘Legacies’ tells the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. It’s here that Klaus Mikaelson’s daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults – including political scion MG and the mysterious Landon Kirby – come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves… in spite of their worst impulses.
Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be – or the villains they were born to be? As they fight to protect their secret, their town of Mystic Falls and eventually the world, they will have to rely on ancient folklore and tales to learn how to battle their far-reaching enemies.
The series stars Danielle Rose Russell, Jenny Boyd, Kaylee Bryant, Quincy Fouse and Aria Shaghasemi, with Matt Davis. Along with McQueen, the producers have also said that the door is open for any of the cast from the previous two shows to pop in as the stories allow (assuming they survived of course!)
‘Legacies’ is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios in association with My So-Called Company, with executive producers Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries”), Brett Matthews (“The Vampire Diaries”), Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Pretty Little Liars”) and Gina Girolamo (“The Originals”).
There is currently no UK broadcaster for ‘Legacies‘, but we’ll bring you more news when we hear it.
